Chicago Bulls: Michael Jordan (BEST)
Michael Jordan finished with a career scoring average over 30 points a game and once scored 30 a game for seven consecutive seasons. Jordan led the NBA in scoring 10 times, with several of the greatest offensive seasons in league history. Oh and he was also elite defensively. Jordan was named to nine All Defense teams and once won Defensive Player of the Year.
He won five MVP awards. And then there was all the Bulls dominance. In Michael’s final six full seasons with the Bulls, Chicago won the championship in all of them. Jordan was 24–11 in NBA Finals games. He was six-for-six in the Finals and six-for-six winning Finals MVP. There was nothing Michael Jordan could not do on a basketball court. He was the Greatest Of All Time.
Chicago Bulls: Eddy Curry (WORST)
Back in 2000, when NBA scouts saw a precocious kid from just outside of Chicago standing 7’0, with the strength of a bull and the feet of a ballerina, they all thought they found the next Shaq.
That’s why the Chicago Bulls made Eddy Curry the 2nd overall pick of the 2001 NBA Draft, straight out of high school. Curry flashed a lot of promise early in his career, but a combination of immaturity, bloated contracts, and future health problems, killed that promise.
